Residential Trash/Recycling

Haltom City residents are offered twice a week pickup of garbage by Progressive Waste Solutions (formerly IESI). The service includes pickup of normal household waste and on-going bulk pickup of some items. There are some restrictions and some alternative options.

Please have trash out for pickup by 7:00 a.m. Progressive Waste Solutions begins their routes at 7:00 a.m. and typically finish by 7:00 p.m.. Trash cans, bags or any other items that weigh more than 50 pounds will not be picked up. By city ordinance, trash containers can remain at the curb no longer than 24 hours. You may set your containers at the curb at 7 p.m. the evening before your pickup. You must pick up your containers by 7:00 p.m. the day of your pickup.

Total weight of a bag and its contents may not exceed 50 pounds. A portable garbage container, 10 gallons to 32 gallons in size, made of galvanized iron, tin, high impact plastic or other suitable material, with two handles and a tight-fitting cover, is also acceptable.

Items must be placed within six feet of the curb. If trash is placed at any other location, the service is considered elective (backdoor) service, and there will be an additional charge. Backdoor service is offered for both trash and recycling pickup. Limbs, leaves, grass and brush must still be placed at the curb. These items will not be picked up from any location other than the curb.
